MOST IMPORTANT DECION YET!!!!!

I was going to buy a Jem from 2011 new but then I got the opportunity from a guy I know personally, he is selling his universe from 1990 for 2,000$

I love both... Which one should I buy???

You can play everything you can with a 6 string on a 7, but not the other way around. If you love both equally, then the 7 is the only choice. Thread closed.

Re: MOST IMPORTANT DECION YET!!!!!

It all comes down to what YOU like best. They're both great guitars that won't disappoint, but the decision is yours--not a bunch of unknown dudes on an Internet forum with different tastes. Heck, buy both and be done with it. Now personally, and obviously I'm not you--I'd get the Universe. The Jem 7VWHs are a dime-a-dozen.

I agree that the price is too high for that Universe.

Re: MOST IMPORTANT DECION YET!!!!!

I would be looking at the jem but its what feels right to you. If seven strings are new to you I would not be risking 2k on the chance you "might" like a seven string.

That is very steep for that model uv bro, I'm sure he will bring It down though if you talk to him. I've never had a uv7bk-always wanted one though! Make sure to make a NGD thread
